Who's in charge of your business?

Who is in charge here? Who is running my business? As a business executive, I might be tempted to feel that I am, that I have a tight grip on the reins and am in complete control. But as a Christian Scientist, I try to realize that the business, its employees, the customers and suppliers, and I are all really governed by one Mind: God.

Is it ignoble or demeaning to admit that God directs the affairs of business? As business men and women we may take pride in our ability to manage ... until something goes wrong! Then we start finding excuses, usually blaming someone or something that we cannot be held accountable for, never realizing that we are really in control of our responsibilities only when God controls us.

Why make excuses?
